Historic Saratoga Springs Walking Tour
Thursday, June 9, 5:30 pm
Park where ever you can find a spot in Downtown Saratoga. The free lot along Spring Street is between where we’ll start and the ending point but anywhere downtown is within walking distance. (See www.saratoga.com/aboutsaratoga/parking/)
Meet at Deer Park Spring in Congress Park at or before 5:30 pm.
From there, we will stroll up Broadway exploring landmarks and discussing features of Saratoga past and present. Along the way you’ll learn some fun and fascinating historical facts the Spa City. We will loop around and end up at the Hamlet and Ghost Speakeasy on the corner of Caroline Street & Maple Avenue. Located at 24 Caroline Street by the corner of Putnam Street, the Hamlet & Ghost was once a feed and grain store in the 1870s. It became a hardware store during Prohibition—an alleged facade to a hidden gambling spot within. Our tour is being provided by Dave Patterson of Saratoga Tours LLC (www.saratogatours.net).
